George Ferguson supports Riots!

riotbutintherightwayFIN

Mayor of Bristol ‘Gorgeous’ George Ferguson was in Easton last night discussing last weeks Thatchers dead party with local residents. In the discussion George said Bristol should be famous for its unconventional side and not riots, adding: “Riot. But in the right way.”

Is George saying The Bristol Bridge riot, Old Market riot and Queen Square riots are fine?

But things like the Hartcliffe riot, Southmead riot and the Knowle West riot aren’t?

Where is the line drawn? What if I was doing a riot and thinking ”It’s ok. This is the sort riot George would like”. Then the next day I have have my face plaster over the evening post with the word ‘SCUM’ underneath it.

WE NEED CLEAR ANSWERS GEORGE.

I don’t wanna think I’m doing a good riot, only to do a bad one.

Maybe George could tell us the riots he’s done that were good. Just to give us some clarity.

Maggie Memorial Special!

The Sickening Shame of of the West Country, Dick Gherkin and Durston Fletcher, celebrate the passing of a tyrant in typical FBWL fashion, with added expertise and wisecracks from Bristol Radical Historian Mr Snuff!

Why Thatcher was a proper nause, including all her best bits – Chilean mass murderers, Section 28, NHS Trusts, the destruction of community and the deregulation that led us to 30 years of hell past, with 30 years of poverty to look forward to!

Easton Maggie Party – first hand accounts of a lovely party that got crashed by ‘outside elements’, dressed in riot gear!

Why riots and ‘sickening celebrations’ are all part of Bristol’s radical history!

Why Harry Redknapp needs to get out of London more, and we confirm Fascist Paolo Di Canio is a ‘bugiardo di merda’.

And finally a bit of Gas Talk, as we lick our lips in preparation for City’s relegation – mind the gap!

This week we play The Beat and local bands The Hit Ups and Three Kings High
